As the Second Life 7th Birthday is winding down, I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite exhibits from the week. While all the exhibits were special, here are some of the ones I most enjoyed.
Linden Lab, the company behind the virtual world of Second Life,issued a release today stating that they will be restructuring their company in order to become more efficient and to allow them to delve into new platforms including the social and mobile web.
Niko Linden announced the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) program to help support and highlight Second Life artists, but the announcement is already full of comments arguing… What is Second Life Art?
Today, in a much anticipated announcement, Linden Lab launched the Beta version of their new Second Life viewer. It will undoubtedly completely revolutionize the way we view and use Second Life.
This morning, tech enthusiast, blogger, and social media superstar, Robert Scoble (aka the Scobleizer) sent the Second Life community and Twitter world into a frenzy with his post, “Is Second Life about to enter its ‘second life?’” However, what followed was more interesting… He announced that tomorrow everything is going to change.
Philip Rosedale has decided to leave Linden Lab. Rosedale claims that he will continue his role as Chairman, but announced that he will be starting a new company that he says is Second Life centric.
A recap with links of my favorite SLCC presentations this year.
Linden Lab has officially selected digital marketing executive Mark Kingdon to replace founder Philip Rosedale as their new CEO effective May 15th. Kingdon leaves his position as CEO of the digital ad agency Organic, Inc. to join the Linden Lab team.
